It's always exciting when Misty Copeland pops up another video. After her first unforgettable Under Armour appearance, Copeland is featured again in a new ad campaign for the brand, "#RuleYourself." You guys. It's mind-blowing. Seriously.

We'll put in the extra work and sweat necessary to prove our naysayers wrong. And the result—similar to the outcome presented in this ad—can be magical.
Plus, Misty. You just have to watch:
